How To Punch Up Your Wardrobe With A Bib Necklace

Bibs aren't just for babies anymore.

Just one glance and you’ll realize how stunning bib necklaces look. These days you have more options when it comes to choosing the fun chaos you'll be wearing around your neck. Things get really boring, very fast when wearing a blazer and a high neck shirt m-f. So, why not sparkle up your neckline with something fabulous and totally professionally accepted?

My first showcase has an “oh my gosh” factor! It's bold, but all black, which gives it extra bonus points! The all-beaded small black beads are tightly strung together to create an alluring look, whether you wear it on bare skin of over a high neckline top. The all-black design makes it an easier choice for those who want to take a junior step and actually wear one of these loud necklaces.

Maybe you are in the mood for something more transparent. Something you can wear at a cocktail party, over that dress that needs a wrap and a statement necklace. If that is the case, this piece can take the place of both by being your necklace and your cape. It's not gaudy, but it does stand out wonderfully even over that random turtleneck you were thinking about tossing out.

Everyone needs some yellow gold accents in their winter fashion. EVERYONE. I hear ladies all the time state that gold doesn't go well with their skin tone (not sure I agree). But, for those believers, I say take the opportunity to wear this over your top and let it do the talking. With ivory and all-black looks this is the piece that will go well.

Although my next showcase is not unique, and not as flowy as the other picks, I think it's gorgeous! The red resin really gives it a fun look, which will pair well with winter’s darker floral blazers and pumps. All it needs is a floral partner in crime to execute perfectly for fashion divas everywhere.

Lastly, I’d like to feature something I love and use a lot. It’s a faceted stone necklace that is hanging from a fabric cord. It’s my go-to because it goes well with very casual outfits. The fabric cord gives it a more playful look, enabling it to look good even with a super causal t-shirt.
